1982 Vignerons de Buzet, Buzet

SKU #1118413

Pulled from the cellar of a Seattle collector who was kind enough to open a bottle and provide cheese! After ten minutes of air in the glass began to show some charming fruit, well balanced and fully mature wine -a treat! According to the winemakers website: "Buzet is a charming village on the left bank of the delightful river Baïse, in the heart of the South-west and the Garonne Valley. Since the days of the Roman legions, this "land of good living" has enjoyed a history as varied as the soils on the slopes of the twenty-seven communes in the appellation area. Nearby, the vast Landes forest, the largest in Europe, pleasantly tempers the ocean climate. This climate and the local soils are both ideal for vines and have led to the planting and development of one of the oldest wine regions in France. The Buzet Winemakers cooperative was founded in 1953 as a result of local winegrowers' desire to see their wine flourish as it had done in the centuries gone by. Initially VDQS, the Buzet wine region was awarded "Appellation Contrôlée" status in 1973. The wine region is bordered by the Garonne on one side and the Landes forest on the other, and now extends over 2000 hectares in production, planted on 40 km of slopes in the Pays d'Albret."

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
